Food Chart

 

Today's Snack: Eat something from the two food groups that you skimped on yesterday, and make sure to drink a tall glass of water!

Good nutrition is important for building a strong body as you grow. Here are the number of daily servings that you should be putting into your body:

 

Food Group Number of Daily Servings Needed

 

Fats, oils, sweets Very Little

Milk and cheese 2-3 Servings

Meats and fish 2-3 Servings

Fruit 2-4 Servings

Vegetables 3-5 Servings

Breads and grains 6-11 Servings

 

Let's pretend that this is a list of all the foods you ate today. Put them where they go in the chart below. Cross them out as you include them:

 

pear slices chicken fingers slice of cheese slice of ham

dinner roll plain spaghetti banana corn on the cob

yogurt apple glass of milk bowl of cereal

peas Fruit Roll-Ups carrots candy bar

 

Milk Meats Fruit Vegetables Breads Fats, Oils

& Cheese & Fish & Grains & Sweets

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Compare the number of servings in each category to the number that your body really needs, up above. Good? Not good? Can you do better?

 

For the next week, keep a food chart, and use it to improve your nutrition.
